Martha Stewart's Best Marijuana Moments
When you think of cannabis celebrities, Seth Rogen, Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong probably come to mind immediately. But what about Martha Stewart? Believe it or not, the home-decorating mogul -- who turns 75 today -- has dabbled with cannabis culture on more than one occasion. Here are her best marijuana moments.
1. "Of course I know how to roll a joint"
In 2013, Martha Stewart took part in a 92Y Talks hosted by Andy Cohen. The discussion quickly veered off into controversial territory when Cohen brought up marijuana. "I'm wondering if you know how to roll a joint," he asked Stewart.
"Of course I know how to roll a joint," she scoffed. "Not that I ever do." However, she did once have to hold herself back from approaching two casual tokers and criticizing their joint craftsmanship.
In the same interview, Stewart played a round of "marry, shag, kill" involving Donald Trump, Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg. And she set his crosshairs on The Donald.
2. "I got high just sitting" at the Justin Bieber Roast
Pop singer Justin Bieber was looking for someone to go easy on him during his 2015 celebrity roast. So he asked Stewart to take part. But she surprised him and viewers by giving some hard-edged advice if he ends up in prison.
"When I did my stretch, all the hood rats on my cellblock wanted to break off a piece of Martha Stewart's ass. So I decided that some bitch needed to get got. I walked into the chow hall, picked out the biggest bull dyke and I stuck her. From then on, prison was easier than making blueberry scones. " - Martha Stewart
She later confessed that she was a bit high while offering up that tidbit of jailhouse wisdom.
"I got high just sitting there [next to Snoop Dogg]," Stewart told Seth Meyers when she stopped by Late Night in 2015. "It took four hours to film that roast. And the secondary smoke is just as powerful as primary smoke, so I was totally high by the time I got on to that microphone."
3. Baking green brownies
The roast wasn't the first time Stewart teamed up with Snoop. In 2009, she asked The Doggfather to help her bake holiday brownies on an episode of Martha (2005-2012). But Snoop kept getting distracted by one key ingredient.
"When do we add the...um?"
"Well, later. And that's secret," Stewart scolded.
To keep him focused, the two started rapping about the baking steps.
4. Pot topiaries
Stewart also got crafty with cannabis in a taped segment for Late Night With Conan O'Brien in 2002. "I found some greens growing on my property, and I wanted to see what you could do with it," Conan said as he dumped out a bag of marijuana on Martha Stewart's work table.
"I think it's something called cannabis sativa," Stewart said as she inspected the plants. The two decided to have a topiary contest. Conan made a reefer wreath, which was blown out of the water by Stewart's sativa Statue of Liberty.
